One of the big pluses of touring Co Carlow is that it’s a small county, so you spend more time visiting the sights than in the car burning diesel. Given the short distances, it made sense to be based in one location for my two nights in the county and I stayed with Bernadine and Jimmy Mulhall at their lovely farmhouse in Ballickmoyler.
